On my last trip to the Farmers Market I couldn’t help but buy a bunch of peppers. I love all peppers and when they are fresh and on sale I cant stop from purchasing a few or a lot! Now what to do with all these peppers? I can only eat so much sautéed peppers and onions. I decided to use my leftover peppers and make stuffed peppers. I had 2 sweet Italian peppers and 1 yellow bell pepper.
- 1 pound 90% lean ground beef
- 1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
- Hillshire Farm smoked Turkey sausage (as much as desired)
- Jasmine Rice (1/2 cup cooked)
- Mozzarella Cheese (1/2 cup)
- Garlic seasoning
First, brown the beef in a skillet. While the beef is cooking go ahead and get the Jasmine Rice going. Then wash and hollow out the peppers to get them ready for the meat filling.
After beef and rice are cooked, add the tomato sauce to the beef while stirring in the rice; mix in and let simmer for a few minutes. While beef mixture is simmering, I mixed the chopped turkey sausage with the mozzarella cheese in a separate bowl and added some garlic and Italian seasoning.
After beef/rice mixture has simmered, mix turkey and cheese with beef/rice mixture and proceed to fill peppers with the stuffing. Once peppers are filled cook in oven for 15 minutes at 350 and enjoy!
